Motorola’s latest slim phone model ZMotorola, the world’s second-largest cell phone vendor, Wednesday took the wraps off a slim slider phone, which it claims is the ultimate evolution of its hot seller RAZR.The 14.8-millimeter-thick model, codenamed Z to show its concept _ the final version of the ultra-thin phone series, was designed and developed in Korea. As a result, the sleek model was first disclosed in Korea unlike its high-profile predecessor RAZR, a clamshell-type phone that hit the local shops last year only after a big success in the global arena.“This is the thinnest among many slider phones available here but it by no means lacks applications compared to other handsets,’’ Gill Hyun-chang, chief executive at Motorola Korea, said.Indeed, the model is outfitted with a 2.2-inch screen, a mega-pixel digital camera and an MP3 player on top of highly customized user interfaces provided on a metal keypad. Motorola plans to market the Z through SK Telecom, the country’s primary mobile carrier, this month with a price tag between 500,000 won and 600,000 won. Despite the upbeat expectation of Motorola, some raise suspicions whether or not it will repeat the notable success of RAZR, for which demands once outstripped its supplies. The first and foremost hitch they present is that the Z cannot savor the status of the pioneer because slim sliders are currently flooding the market. By contrast, the 14.5-millimeter-thick RAZR was the first wafer-thin handset in the market when it debuted last June and its popularity prompted other domestic producers to roll out copycat products. via times.hankooki.com
Korean mobile phones continue to feature DMB TV capabilities while portable media players haven’t really changed much, the inevitable has happend, Samsung has integrated DMB in their latest SMU-D110 PMP.The small handheld can receive DMB signals, but it can also work as a standard PMP. A 2.4 inch 320 x 240 display makes the TV look great, I’m sure. When not watching DMB, the SMU-D110 is just another PMP. Memory is flexible thanks to the TransFlash slot as well as Bluetooth to cut out the need for ugly wires. Of course, this device will only be available in Korea. It will be interesting, though, to see how it goes. On one hand, it seems like it could be difficult to break into the market when so many phones are offering DMB and Samsung and others are adding DMB to cameras and everything else with a screen. People may not want to add another device to the gear bag when they don’t need to. On the other hand, the screen is bigger than what you would get on a phone, so it might just tickle your viewing fancy a bit better. via mobilemag.com
Samsung proudly presents their new Micro Card, and they claim its the fastest on the market. They back that statement up by giving a comparison between this new card and a MicroSD, that offers a writing speed of 2.04MB/s, while this MMCMicro by Samsung offers 7.12MB/s.Samsung Electronics Develops Fastest GigaByte Micro Memory CardSeoul, Korea – February 9, 2005: Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., the world leader in advanced memory technology, today announced that it has developed the fastest micro memory card with a gigabyte of density, for use in small cell phones, digital cameras and MP3 players. High demand for the high-speed 1 GB MMCmicroTM card is expected from cell phone manufacturers because of its compelling combination of features: speed, capacity, size and reduced power consumption.The new 1 GB MMCmicro, at 7.12 MBs per second, writes 3.5 times as fast as other micro cards being sold today. It can store 20 five-megapixel pictures in 11 seconds, while other cards take up to 30 seconds, or even longer, to do the same.”The card is large enough to store 15 hours of mobile video and fast enough to download 90 minutes of it in under two minutes,” said Don Barnetson, Associate Director, Flash Marketing, Samsung Semiconductor., USA. Samsung’s new MMCmicro comes with a dual voltage of 1.8 volts and 3.3V. The lower voltage version reduces power consumption 82 percent over other micro-sized cards. An adapter allows the card to be plugged into any multimedia card slot.The card – the size of a fingernail (12mmx14mmx1.1mm) – houses four NAND flash memories and a controller.The Dataquest semiconductor research firm said that the global MMCmicro market will expand by 81 percent cumulative annual growth rate (CAGR) between 2005 and 2010, from 4 million units last year to 77 million units in 2010, while the overall MultiMediaCard market grows by about 9 percent CAGR from 65 to 100 million units.The 1 GB MMCmicro will be commercially available in the third quarter of 2006.
“Looks-wise, the A636 has a face that only a mother could love. For those of you who’ve been long time Pocket PC users, the A636 reminds me of the old Casio E-200. Despite its unabashedly gray rectangular looks and reasonable bulk, the unit is actually extremely well designed and thought out. It works equally well in portrait and landscape modes (nice for mapping), has a slim GPS receiver panel that folds flush into the back of the PDA and sports large, easy-to-use when driving controls. It might not have the stylish good looks of the non-GPS ASUS A730w, but its ergonomics are excellent. The large 3/4″ speaker grille faces front and ensures that you’ll hear voice guidance in the car, and the A636 has both a directional pad and an application launcher pad that’s arranged much like a d-pad for easy use” Read this review here:
Universal Display has created the proto of a flexible color OLED display. The proto is based on flexible metallic foil. It supports ordinary images and video as well. The display has a 4” diagonal and 0.1 mm of width. It weighs about 6 g. To compare, ordinary glass LCD with similar specs are 1-1.5 mm thick and weigh 20-30 g.According to Universal Display the use of foil instead of glass decreases thickness and weight and also increases strength greatly and improves temperature specs of displays. Such features are very important for phones, handhelds and notebooks. Besides it becomes possible to make gadgets, which can be carried, for example, on arms like PDA-bracelets. The company intends to show the proto at USDC (United States Display Consortium) conference in Phoenix. via mobile-review.com
